People are attracted to the the Florida lifestyle. From shell collecting at Sanibel Island to the beaches of Fort Myers, Florida is the best place to vacation in the country.
This means that real estate will always be desirable in SW Florida. Buying a vacation condo? A second home for the cold winters? Maybe wanting to live here year round. The real estate here is still on an upswing from 2008.
